Fortifying Your Overhead Garage Door for Hurricane Season

One thing to consider when choosing an overhead garage door is the weather in your area. High winds or areas prone to hurricanes may require special materials or additional bracing to deal with the weather. Due to their size, garage doors are particularly susceptible to wind damage. You may want to consider additional bracing, heavier track gauging and additional hardware if you live near the ocean. For example, a Sacramento overhead door may not have the same requirements as one in coastal Florida would. Failure to properly secure your panel could lead to you having to pay for garage door dent repair or worse – a new door entirely.

In high weather areas, you’ll also want to get your garage door spring inspected more often. This should be done at least once a year, depending on how often you use the garage door. It’s definitely a job you’ll want to leave to the professionals. Considering the incredible tension they are under, springs are a serious safety risk and can cause serious harm and even death if accidentally released.

Understanding How To Repair Garage Door Spring

Springs serve as a counterbalance to garage doors that weigh hundreds of pounds. They allow you to operate the door with little effort. As with any hardware that’s under this amount of wear and tear, failure is inevitable. There are two types of springs used in garages: extension and torsion, with the latter being more dangerous. When working on either type of spring, it’s important to understand that they’re under significant tension and loss of life or limb can occur. It is for that reason we encourage you to seek professional help when it comes to fixing broken garage springs. Our licensed technicians are available 24/7 to service your springs in a safe and affordable manner.
